    Default Matchday 28 (27) Nottingham Forest v Luton Town

    The first time we're hosting Luton in almost 12 years. That encounter was in League One, with Nathan Tyson scoring the only goal. That victory was crucial in securing promotion with Luton being demoted. Fast forward to the present and the situation is similar. We are chasing promotion and Luton hoping to avoid a swift return to League One. Luton haven't won at the City Ground since 1977, also a season which we ended up getting promoted and on to history making. Of course Luton are our 'favourite' Cup Final opponents.

    History aside, this is a game that is crucial to whatever hopes we have for a successful season. Hopefully come match day, we'd have 1 or 2 new additions, however the responsibility remains with the current squad and on paper, we should secure 3 points. But they're a plucky side as we found out at the reverse fixture.
    It's been some time since we've had a comfortable afternoon at home and after the drama last Saturday, a more composed and workmanlike performance is needed.

    Unbeaten in 4 league games, let us make it 5. A clean sheet would be most welcome too. 3-0 Forest.

    In honour of the late Roy Dwight. Interestingly both our Cup Finals had a Clough involved in the action. The referee for this match was a certain Jack Clough and Nigel Clough scored twice 30 years later.

    My 50th on the Saturday, can’t be arsed having a party so weekend revolves around this.

    Prediction: 50-0 to the famous team, Grabban to bag 49 and Samba the other with a rabona goal kick.

    Oh FFS.

    Lost their last 11 away in all comps. If ever there was a good time to play a team, this is it.

    We had better start off on the front foot here. No need to let them press and hit on the break.

    A chance for some goals and confidence.

    This is a must win to be honest.

    Not wanting to disrespect Luton. But we need to be taking the game to these and putting them to bed.

    3 vital points need to be won.

    Home banker, 4/6 was the best I could get on us, still intend to pile in given only one result looks possible.

    Unless he's on his way, Id consider Carvalho centrally for this, with Sow & Watson behind him. Looks an opportunity to get some confidence back, particularly with Silva off the boil at Reading.

    Samba
    Jenkinson Figs Worrall Ribeiro
    Sow Watson
    Lolley Carvalho Adomah
    Grabban

    We're never gonna smash anyone, but this looks an opportunity to improve the goal difference.

    Agreed. Home to Luton is the type of game you have to win if you want stay in the with a shot of the top 2 and if we honest they don't have any players to worry about bat maybe Izzy Brown who may be back for this

    There's no two ways about this - this game is a banana skin.
    On the one hand, given Luton's league position and experience at this level, this is the kind of team which we should routinely put away if we want to maintain our own position.
    On the other hand, and I don't know if Luton are approaching games in this way, but if they do as would be expected of a team in their position - ie play very conservatively and keep things tight and compact, then they could be just the kind of team that we have shown we have no clue how to break down.

    Not sure how they play away from home(think they strive to play front-foot after Jones) but their defence looked very poor at their place.

    They've conceded the most goals in the league (58.), 8 more than the next team, Barnsley.

    They've scored 33 (2 fewer than us) with 5 teams scoring fewer, and 3 other teams also scoring 33.

    From that alone it looks like they don't just sit back and give in. They seem to come out and try and play. Which they did at Kenilworth Rd to be fair to them. Looking across their squad, they perhaps just lack the quality to do it at this level.

    Like I said above, it really is a must win. I'm not the type to label games or look to try and put pressure on for any reason. But if we want to really cement our place in the top 6 and keep confidence flowing. A win is a must here.

    Doesn't need to be 4-0. But a 2-0 win where they don't lay a glove is the type of win I want to see.

    Are we allowed to play Carv twice? Worth a shot!

    Luton are shipping 2 a game, up to 3 a game in the last 10.

    Whilst we aint the most prolific, its very difficult to see us drawing a blank here, regardless of how deep they sit.

    Aside from that I'd agree, would love to see Carv given a start on this one. I'd have Ameobi in front of Adomah all day long here though unless we're thinking of resting for Reading a few days after. Dangerous game to play that though.

    You would think this is a ‘home banker’ but this is Forest we are talking about.
    We could just as easily win 3-0 as draw 1-1, I can’t see a defeat though.

    I’ll go for 2-1 to the Reds.

    5 - 0 win in your honour Sir. Hope it's a fantastic day for you.

    Seriously tho, a decent performance with plenty of clear cut chances would be appreciated while remaining defensively solid.

    If we take an early chance we need to put our foot on their throat and not take it off.
    Opportunity for a confidence boosting win here but this is the Championship.

    Whoops!

    Hooray!!

    What's it to be? With everyone else thinking this is a dead cert, those of us who know about these things are just hoping against hope that Forest don't do the Forest thing and gift a team desperately out of form a most unlikely win.

    I'm very much expecting us to do the Forest thing.

    Was Wigan away our last Sunday televised game?
    We went into that in form too but somehow contrived to play dreadful footy.
    However this is at home. And if you can't beat Luton then things will be looking bleak for a successful campaign

    This is Forest - the one constant we've had across good and bad seasons for most of my adult life is that we have ALWAYS beaten sides that everyone recognises as better than us and lost to sides who shouldn't be fit to lick our boots.
